Jamaaladeen has always stretched the mold of what and how a bassist is supposed to play. He has re-defined his instrument's artistic potential. His creatively free approach to the bass caught the eye of saxophonist Ornette Coleman and he became an original member of Prime Time. Tacuma continued to press the musical envelope with his debut album Showstopper. In the past few years he is recognized for his artistic excellence worldwide with the "PARALLEL CULTURE" AWARD 2009, Marcus Garvey Foundation 50th Anniversary Award 2011 and The Pew Fellowship in the Arts 2011,The MacDowell and Headlands Center for the Arts residency fellowships. Jamaaladeen tours worldwide. Jam All Productions record label was established to release creative music.
